2022-2023 Charity Review

As usual in the 2022-23 academic year PACA students, staff and families wholeheartedly embraced charity events and fundraising. Through activities including bake sales, staff vs student sporting events, Shaun by the Sea decorating and the inaugural PACA duets we received donations totalling £2,557.35. For every pound given, we have been able to match the amount, meaning our charitable donation total was £5,114.70 in addition to the 50 plus food hampers we donated to local food banks!

The charities we donated to this year were:

  • - Macmillan Cancer Research
  • - Save the Children
  • - Parkinson’s UK
  • - Martlets Hospice
  • - Purple People Kitchen
  • - British Red Cross
  • - Comic Relief

We have also this year created links with a school in Chitipa, Malawi. Through our tutor time Expert Learner programme, students were encouraged to work together to develop fundraising ideas. In particular, the Aspiration Centre raised over £400 through their ‘Journey 2 Africa’ sponsored cycle and three year 10 students (Ethan, Ian and Gabriel) also raised over £500 with a sponsored cycle ride. With the donation, we have received confirmation that the school have been able to landscape the playground to include space for students to play football, netball and basketball. They have also been able to purchase books for the school, which also acts as a library for the local community. We look forward to continuing our support this year.

In early September, through the Student Council, we will select our chosen charities for the year and look forward to targeting an even larger grand total of donations!
